    Does anyone know where I can find fiberglass grating? Found an industrial place to order them but they are high.

    I think you’ll find galvanized steel cheaper and more readily available. Fiberglass grating is expensive and won’t span as far.

    I’m setting it on the ground in the marsh so we don’t sink into the Abyss in panel blinds.

    I still don’t think you need fiberglass. Galvanized would last a very, very long time. Maybe tack some flat bars across the bottom of the grating to increase the surface area and keep it from disappearing in the mud.

    Weight is a issue for me also and the glass is a bit lighter.

    I don’t have an air boat so I have to walk in to a lot of places and drag my stuff in a tub.

    The glass grates are cheaper than another boat for me
